5 Home Trends We Saw at High Point Market

High Point Market Recap from Homemakers Furniture

To stay on top of the latest home trends, we traveled last month to the biggest home furnishings gathering in the world: the High Point Furniture Market!

Twice each year, more than 75,000 people descend on High Point, N.C. to explore the latest home furniture styles and designs. With 2,000 exhibitors, 180 buildings and 11.5 million square feet of showroom space, High Point is the premier destination for home furniture.

We got a sneak peak at the hottest trends, including many that you will see more of on our showroom floor soon. Here are five takeaways from this spring’s High Point Market.

Rustic furniture remains popular

Rustic furniture is maintaining its popularity in the marketplace. Live-edge dining sets are ubiquitous, as are distressed finishes and reclaimed materials.

Greige, the preferred neutral

What happens when you combine gray and beige, two of the most beloved neutrals in the color palette? You get greige, of course. This soft, approachable hue was everywhere at market, including dining sets, upholstered furniture and bedroom sets.

Names you know

Homemakers is proud to carry furniture and accessories from the names you know and love, including Joanna Gaines, Trisha Yearwood and Donny Osmond.

We’ll be adding to our star-powered product lines with more familiar names. TV home-improvement stars Drew and Jonathan Scott bring a globally inspired, clean-design aesthetic to their Scott Living furniture collections.

For a touch of industrial chic, salvaged styling, consider the Black Dog Salvage line. It’s full of one-of-a-kind home décor pieces, including rustic beds and coffee tables with reclaimed windows and working gears.

Versatility and functionality

Another overarching theme we saw in High Point was a focus on adaptability. Furniture manufacturers are producing multifunctional piece that can be used in a variety of ways.

360-degree design

Manufacturers are also putting more thought into 360-degree design, adding style elements on the sides and backs of furniture pieces. This allows it to be placed, or floated, in the middle of rooms, instead of anchored against a wall.
